WhatIWore: I’m a huge fan of Sarah from Chalkboard Nails and we’ve recently partnered up to take inspiration from past What I Wore looks and make them into amazing manicures. When Sarah sent these photos over my jaw dropped! I love her work and can’t wait to show you more inspired nail art in our four part collaboration! 

Here’s Sarah’s description
 
There are two key elements in Jessica’s look: the yellow and the patterned blouse. I wanted to make sure that I represented both of them in the manicure! I began by painting three of my nails with Finger Paints - Lemon Sour (pale yellow) and the other two with OPI - My Vampire Is Buff (cream). 
 
Next, I used a small nail art brush and Julep - Taylor (blue) to paint the larger ikat patterns on the nails. After painting the full nail patterns, I added some smaller ikat accents on the yellow nails to tie them all together. If you’re intimidated by nail art designs that use brushes - don’t be! It’s not as scary as you think, I promise! This is an especially good design to practice with because it’s just quick, uneven brushstrokes. Give it a try and I think you’ll surprise yourself.

WhatIWore: For the past few weeks I’ve been falling fast into the world of nail art.  It was Sarah, from CHALKBOARDNAILS who caught my attention and answered some of my early questions. I asked her if she’d be up for a collaboration and this is the manicure she created based off a past What I Wore ensemble.  Pretty amazing, no?

Here’s what Sarah says about this nail art:

The stripes were done with a tape manicure technique. It involves painting a base color, letting it dry completely, and blocking off part of the nail with tape (I use Scotch brand Satin Tape). You paint over the tape, and then when you peel the tape off, your base color is left untouched where the tape was blocking it!

The leopard nails were freehanded. I started with my base color, and then added on evenly spaced splotches of the darker tan color. Then, using a dotting tool, I added in the black markings around the tan splotches.
